    What naturals are pink?

    Hi All, Does anyone know what these pearls are, particularly the pink pearl. They do appear to be little naturals around 4 to 5mm in size but I don't have the exact sizes, yet. The pink pearl intrigues me. It is adorable :) Dawn - Bodecia http://www.ebay.com/sch/dawncee333/m.html eBay...

    Are these Arabian Gulf (Basra) pearls? Opinions wanted

    Hello some more pearls needing opinions. These are are app 5 to 7mm. Varying widths. The coral beads are 6mm so it is not hard to see the various sizes. I think they may be Arabian Gulf pearls. Once again I do not have them with me so cannot give more information. They do not look like...

    Are these River Pearls???? Opinions Please

    Hi All, What is the opinion on these freshwater pearls. Are they River Pearls? They look like it to me but freshwater naturals are not my forte although I knew, just knew, that Andrea aka madsciencechic's big whites had to be naturals. So maybe my eye is coming into recognising river pearls...

    What do you think - Large Pendant with Pearls

    I am wondering what PGers think about this type of necklace. It is a large pendant called a Belle Epoque from around the 1880s or so I was informed with old cultured pearls. The pearls have an extremely thick nacre. I can see this from wear around 2 of the drill holes. When I say thick I...

    Golden, Bronze, Pink Plus Pearl Ring - Opinions Wanted

    This is a pearl ring that I added to another thread a while back. Think it was KiwiPauls's thread. Sorry Paul :) I was asked for better photos and so decided to start a thread for it. It is a beautiful pearl - in an antique setting with some old diamonds. I love it. My favourite. But...

    Basra Pearl? Opinions

    I love this pearl. It measures 7mm x 5mm app. Hard to measure. It looks so different under different lights. Goes from gold, to bronze to a creamy gold and even a blue. Needs a clean too. My photos don?t show the lustre as it really is because it is really wonderful. Will take better...

    Possibly, maybe Mississippi Pearl? But please correct.

    I believe this may be a so called Mississippi Pearl, not sure but it seems to have the right lustre. Once again I do intend to have it certified and won't list it in my site until I do. I am not sure what kind of pearl it might be really. These photos are not good. Did take better ones but...

    South Sea Black Natural pearl? Opinions please.

    I believe this is a natural black pearl from the South Seas, possibly around the Tahitian Islands. To me it has the shape, surface and lustre of a natural. Plus the slightly hammered look. Would love some opinions on it. I do intend to send it for certification asap. That depends on sales...

    Think I have found another Poe Pipi

    Hi All and especially kiwipaul, It is just a coincidence but I came across what I believe to be a Poe Pipi on eBay yesterday. It is 5mm in diameter and looks to be a little deeper. This is one, when I get it, that I will be sending for certification first. I haven't done a search on eBay...

    Natural Tahitian?

    Hello again, These are beautiful Tahitian pearls but they are NOT natural pearls which could be very misleading for buyers and all in general. I have just listed the one and only Natural Tahitian pearl I have every seen and believe me it looks nothing like these. I think you actually...
